Why? Because it's starting to get serious, and the same liberals who applauded and feat themselves over exposing Watergate have endorsed the liberal version of the CREEP plumbers (WFPL, via Kristinn at FreeRepublic).
A secret recording of a campaign strategy session between U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and his advisors was taped by leaders of the Progress Kentucky super PAC, says a longtime local Democratic operative.
Mother Jones Magazine released the tape this week. The meeting itself took place on Feb. 2.
Jacob Conway, who is on the executive committee of the Jefferson County Democratic Party, says that day, Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison, who founded and volunteered for Progress Kentucky, respectively, bragged to him about how they recorded the meeting.
Conway says neither the local nor the state Democratic party had any part in the incident.
...Morrison and Reilly did not attend the open house, but they told Conway they arrived later and were able to hear the meeting from the hallway.
“They were in the hallway after the, I guess after the celebration and hoopla ended, apparently these people broke for lunch and had a strategy meeting, which is, in every campaign I've been affiliated with, makes perfect sense,” says Conway. “One of them held the elevator, the other one did the recording and they left. That was what they told to me from them directly.”
....Before the recording was released, Progress Kentucky ran afoul of the McConnell campaign for another incident. On the PAC's Twitter account, a volunteer criticized McConnell's wife, Elaine Chao, and her ethnicity, saying the Taiwanese-American former Secretary of Labor was complicit in moving jobs to China. Shortly after the tweets became public, Morrison resigned from Progress Kentucky, though he insists another volunteer sent the tweets.Because in liberal logic, this isn't illegal. This PAC is exposing how Mitch McConnell is waging the war on women on Naomi Judd's bad seed. Just like the slur on McConnell's wife isn't a big deal. Liberals can get away with anti-Asian slurs, or calling blacks "coons" or "niggers" (see Alec Baldwin and Sean Penn's son, Hopper) because they're not racist. It's all for the progressive cause, ya know!
Apparently the Democrat Jacob Conway exposed this, he says, "for the good of the party." Really? Did he get orders from a higher source telling him to throw these superPAC guys under the bus? Because the tone toward this Watergate-style affair changed in just a couple of days, if you saw the Twitter account of DNC Communications Director Brad Woodhouse not only used the revelations of the strategy session to attack McConnell, but "LOL'ed" calls to denounce the eavesdropping and illegal recording.
But Woodhouse today was trying to spin his way out of this "distraction."
Not only what did Mother Jones know, and when did they know it, but what did the higher ups at the DNC know, and when did they know it?
